BJP gives up on Yeddyurappa, trouble for K'taka CM Gowda
It seems that Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadananda Gowda may land in big trouble if the party indeed decides to conduct midterm poll. KS Eshwarappa, the state BJP chief said that even Gowda would be ready to face a mid-term election if the situation warrants, reported Times of India.
However, the party leaders may conduct an emergency meeting on Sunday, Mar 18 and Monday, Mar 19 to decide the fates of Yeddyurappa and Gowda. The daily also reported that Eshwarappa might have backed BJP patriarch LK Advani and the RSS while delivering his message.
Eshwarappa's message surfaced a day ahead of the crucial by-poll to Udupi-Chikmagalur Lok Sabha seat. About 12.53 lakh voters are expected to seal the fate of 14 candidates and the three major parties - Congress, BJP and JDS.
